StarTeam rootLocalFolder should be java.io.File

My two cents:

Anything in ANT that is suppose to point to a file or directory is by 
convention assumed to be relative to ${basedir} (unless you specify a full 
path). By having the parameter be of type File, ANT takes care of this 
transparently.

Using CWD for relative files means that buildfiles cannot be used correctly
when called <ant> from one another.

It seem not only worth, but a bug not to work that way.
